BUILDING IN DAVENPORT
DAVENPORT, OKLA., THURSDAY, MAY 14. im.
VAST IMPROVEMNTS FOR DAVENPORT
ARE TALKED OF AND SHAPING
FOR THIS YEAR
A resumption of residence
building is practically established
in and near Davenport which
indicates that the stridency of
. « oney has disappeared from
this part of the state. Judge W,
VV. Baker is building a fine res-
icence about one and a half
miles out from town, Elmer
Haylett has a good residence
near the corporate limits about
enclosed; Mr. Thompson w...
build a residence right away on
the north of town; W. H. Bra
nier w ill build a residence on east
second street right av\ay then
also, we understand that some
parties in or out of town, we
did not ascertain, are intending
bqilit several residences all at
once for rental purposes.

public, but it seems that when-
ever the legislature discovered
any business in the state that j
was not in harmony with their
"one gallus" states m anship
ideas they crushed it at once.

fellovvf was overheard saying
fhe Leader was trying to induce
pvpryons to be republicans. Its
jus): a case of talking without
fl|inkinj| as t)ie Leacjer i$ doing
npt|)irig pf the kind except in

plans ftre better than qfhep
plans tn maintain business. The
■ Leader has no interest what any
one's political faith may be. but
it has an interest in the people
and will he found exerting that
interest at all times Rather
than to start out on the hoary

ple to opt 'n rebellion against their
political principles for the sake

good reasons to condemn that
party in Oklahoma, especially,
as it appears po be a grpss fraud
and can not even agree with
itself aijd makes no pretensions
to fulfil) its pledges to the peo-
ple. The Reader liolieyes that
any party who will use such ex-
pressions as ' let the people rule"
are not only frauds but are not
true to American-laws and insti-
tutions, as the people have ruled
